Paragliders are thrilling and majestic to watch, especially when they’re shredding through vengeful, murderous clouds. Battle vapor with this Groupon.
$125 for a Tandem Paragliding Instructional Flight (a $250 Value)
Harnessed together, a certified instructor and gliding pupil jog 20 yards, towing a parachute until it lifts into the air. Paragliders soar at elevations of up to 3,000 feet with views of of desert landscapes and cacti stampedes. Finally, they glide back down to earth at the end of their 20- to 25-minute journey.
Using the sky as his classroom, certified paraglider Sean Buckner introduces his pupils to elevated views of desert and mountain terrain. Sean travels to various sites, where he uses a winch towing system to launch tandem flights in most wind conditions. Beneath the glider's elliptical shape, Sean teaches basic skills or the art of thermal flying, which calls fliers to hunt for air lifts, soar at higher altitudes, and make awkward small talk with hawks.
